The house and its story are very interesting. The tour guide was excellent. You definitely feel like you are experiencing Wright's use of light and space to give you a particular sense of place and space.

A one-hour tour that was such a treat. The style of the house is timeless. The use of wood, windows, lighting and natural light is just amazing. Its a must architectural see.
